LD: 2nd Half of 1st Semester, 2nd Year

3rd semester figure drawing was all about stiff 'n' boring structural studies ... and I had loads of fun doing that, which I'm afraid it means I'm stiff'n' boring!

Isolated Studies 
A.K.A chopping-off-the-limbs-and-taking-off-the-skin

Less-Isolated Studies 
A.K.A less-chopping-and-less-skinning  

Some Short Poses

Some Long Poses

Dip Pen &Ink
Channeling Heinrich Kley and having loads of fun while failing miserably
*** Dip Pen does NOT go good with newsprint!

Half-Assed Animations

Richard Williams thinks that one should take care of draftsmanship before even considering animation.
Meanwhile ...
Academic animation programs think that one should take care of draftsmanship, animation and 8 other courses at the same time.
As an animation student, It always hurts to see that mediocre touch in all my animations, knowing that given more time, they could have been potentially better.
But one can only do so much with his time ...

Wave, Boat, Sack: 

Weight Lift n' Toss: 
only focused on the mechanics of the action, and the result was fairly satisfying.
probably the only assignment i didn't really half-ass!

Walk n' Run: 
had fun making this crazy hobo walk! didnt upload the rest of the assignment cause it was rushed and terrible!

Expression Change: 
simply hate how this one turned out ...

LD: 1st Half of 1st Semester, 2nd Year

Absolutely no time for the virtual world these days, so here is a big one!
I've been through so many different phases and experiments with figure drawing ... loving the journey.
Here is a selection of pages from my pads. Mostly short poses compared to the ones from summer (30 seconds to 5 minutes).
Sorry for the overload of figures per page and the ugly layout!

- in chronological order ... more or less! -
